American Jewish History Scholar to Speak about Brandeis as First Jewish Justice


On April 14, the Jewish Community will host Dr. David Dalin at two events focusing on Louis D. Brandeis. Dr. Dalin is an ordained rabbi and widely published scholar on American Jewish history. He is the author, co-author, or editor of eleven books, including  The Presidents of the United States and the Jews.  He is now completing a forthcoming book, The Jewish Justices of the Supreme Court, from Brandeis to Kagan – Their Lives and Legacies, that is scheduled for publication by the Brandeis University Press.   A keynote address on “Louis D. Brandeis:  The First Jewish Supreme Court Justice” at 10 am (part of a full day Senior University program) will be given at The Temple on Brownsboro Road in Louisville, Kentucky.  Later that evening, a second talk on “American Presidents From Lincoln to Obama and their Relations with the Jews” will take place at 7 pm at the Jewish Community Center (also in Louisville).  These programs are co-sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Council and The Temple, and are coordinated with other events recognizing the 100th anniversary of the nomination of Louis Brandeis to the Supreme Court.  For information about these events and how to attend, contact Jewish Community Relations Council Development Director Matt Goldberg, by April 12.
